Shlesinger and Glauten announced that on January 13th, they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Sierra Mae (via People). The proud parents shared that their daughter was born in Los Angeles at 11:26 pm, weighing 7 lbs. and 9 oz.
On the birth of their first child, Shlesinger gushed, “We live in Hollywood and she is the first person I’ve been excited to meet,” adding, “Mother and baby are doing beautifully. Dad’s back hurts, unrelated to pregnancy.”
She told People that the couple came up with the name of their daughter as a compromise. Schlesinger wanted a unique name that was rooted in nature, while her husband wasn’t exactly on board. “My husband wanted an easy name — our compromise was a unique name with an uncomplicated spelling.” The couple landed on Sierra.
Shlesinger announced she was pregnant on stage at a comedy show back in August (via Entertainment Tonight). She shared, “Oh my god, I can’t believe this is happening! Recently, I had to move a lot of tickets because of a scheduling conflict,” she continued, “So I just wanted to say it’s because I’ve been working on a very big project. And you’ll be able to see it in January!” Congrats are in order for the new parents!
